Consol Bridge

Found this snippet interesting –

Soldiers do not March in step when going across bridges because they could set up a vibration which could be sufficient to knock the bridge down.

Scouts at Jambo discovered that they could “swing” the bridge laterally by walking instep across it. It is actually quite disconcerting and gives on the same awkward gait associated with sea-legs when venturing ashore.
